An attorney in Georgia for texting accidents

Using a cell phone behind the wheel falls under driver distraction. But the risk of driver distraction has increased as smartphones and other portable electronic devices have become more advanced. Drivers who use their phone to text message, take or send photos while driving, check their email, or post on social media sites are all likely to take longer to react to road obstacles than other drivers. That's why so many rear-end accidents and head-on crashes in recent years have been linked to texting and driving.
